After the match, Sami got the mic and he said he thought coming out tonight would cure what ails him.  It only reinforced what he thought about for the last nine months.  It seems like you missed him.  He says from the bottom of his heart, he did not miss any of this or any of you.  WWE is a super toxic environment.  It is not because of the McMahons or the other superstars.  It is because of this audience and your ugliness.  Sami says he lives a meaningful and fulfilling life, but your lives seem so devoid of meaning that you only get joy and satisfaction for being critics.  

Sami says that is because it is the only thing that gives you any sense of self importance.  You judge everyone but yourselves.   It is because none of you have the balls to look inside yourself because of the ugliness and cynicism inside yourselves.  You think you are the voice of reason?  You think you are the voices that should be heard?  Overnight, you have become the evil overlords of WWE.  Sami Zayn has been about one thing, doing what is right.  The right thing is not to come back and save WWE.  It is not to takeover the WWE.  The right thing to do is to come out here every single week and hold each and every one of you accountable because no one wil.  Sami tells everyone he will see them in hell.

We go to commercial with the sound of Elias' guitar.

Elias is in the ring.

He says last night, John Cena ruined his Wrestlemania for the second year in a row.  You were supposed to get the performance of his life, but you were subjected to the Doctor of Thuganomics.  John Cena is no musician.  He is no artist.  He is a selfish, insecure, piece of garbage riding the coattails of Elias' popularity.  Elias says in the spirit of Brooklyn and in the spirit of what happened, he is going to show how easy it is to rap.

I am sick of John Cena, I'm your biggest star.  If you want the Doctor of Thuganomics, Elias is going to rap a few bars.  John brought out the shovel, but you cannot bury him.  Elias says he is holding up three fingers, and the middle one is for you.  Everyone wants to make their name off Elias, but the next one to interrupt him is a dead man.

A gong sounds and the Undertaker is here.
